“Great place, so glad I found it.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

A great dining experience. Service, atmosphere, and food all get top marks. I was looking for something different to eat while in the Tampa area, and noticed Grillsmith. Nice happy hour food and drink specials each day. A "must go" when I return next month.

“Yum!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

All 4 of us (2 couples) enjoyed our meals. One had pasta, which she loved, another had meatloaf with a marsala sauce on it (he claimed it was the best meatloaf he's ever had!). Another had pork chop (delicious) and one had chicken marsala...the chicken was dry, but the marsala sauce and side dishes made up for it!
We particularly loved the cauliflower 'smash', and potatoes au gratin. We would definitely recommend!!

“Wonderful Happy Hour with Great Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

This restaurant offer happy hour every day of the week from 4-7 PM. $5 martinis,all top shelf, made exactly as you wish. Great wine specials for $4 and less in addition to many other liquor offerings at reduced prices.

Great appetizers to go with the drinks all priced from $5-$7. Try the Thai shrimp, they are great.

We did not dine off the menu tonight, however, our past experience is the food is wonderful and offered at a reasonable price.
